Pitman Arm,Tie Rod, Trac Bar AND Gear Box.. Toast!
Well today I went in to the local suspension shop, I let them have my truck over night to find out what the hell was going on with my steering.. I am sure some of you saw my other thread about Trac bars... Well things just got worse..
I called the dealer I bought the truck from (Chevy dealer) and actually got the owner on the phone.. I explained to him I have had the truck for less than a month and these issue can be proven to of been here long before I bought the truck and I questioned there "Safety inspection" when it’s obvious the Gear Box is shot and the Pitman arm is also.
He ended up talking to the owner of the shop my truck was at and last thing he said was "worst case scenario is they will cover %50 parts and %50 labor"
So I told him to work up a quote for the dealer with everything listed that needs to be replaced including the front shocks that are bad. All at Ford dealer pricing 9%20 off retail).... Then we will go from there...
I know I have to go with a Ford steering box but does anyone make an aftermarket Pitman Arm, Drag link, Tie rod and Trac Bar Combo?
The truck has a 6 inch lift but I plan on having them add an extra 2 inches to the lift while its in there getting worked on.
